Stephen Radosh (who produced the Mario and Zelda games for the Philips CD-i) spoke to Game Informer and has revealed something very shocking. He nearly made a Donkey Kong arcade game for Sega that involved being a parking attendant.

Radosh commented thatt Sega had actually gotten the rights to make a Donkey Kong arcade game and there were plans to release this game before business interactions got in the way. The company was owned by Paramount at the time but was sold back to Japanese companies before the game could come out and was thus cancelled.

“Somehow Sega had gotten the rights to Donkey Kong. You were dodging cars that were pulling in and out of the lot, and you had to get X number of cars parked in spaces.”

I am trying to picture how this would work and it just sounds so utterly strange to me.
